A PDF containing what?

A good place to start in on Dreadmere.

Which is still not confirmation... just hopeful at this point.

When I went looking for these, I was surprised to find how limited the shopping options actually were. I'd have gone for more hemispherical ones had I been able to find them. 

 

(Or, in short, I agree...)

 

As the Christmas season approaches, Michaels tends to carry vast quantities of clear plastic spherical Christmas ornaments, some of which come in two halves. I loaded up on them last season, thinking they might make good effect domes (and planets for sci fi games).

 

...

 

As for the reveal, now I understand why the folks at Reaper have been discussing Dreadmere so much. ::):

I'm excited to hear that the tree will be an add-on and not part of an expansion. :wub: Whether it will be by itself or not remains to be seen, but it increases the chances I will get two! 

 

Huzzah!

BOAT!
 

But I don't need the rest of the dreadmere stuff actually, well maybe the fishmongers.

Depending on what will be the next installment of this expansion, I will either add it or wait for retail for the boat.

I have to say that boat is really cool. I might not get it in the kickstarter since I am running out of money fast on it but it is a must have on retail release for sure!

I'm hoping they include ReaperWolf's Dreadmere adventures from last year's ReaperCon. There was a lot of pre-made PCs in them, so they could appear as extras in the expansion.

 

For some reason, I really like Prinda. Maybe women in aprons who smell of fish are secretly one of my turn-ons?

What a thing to wake up to. The three new ones for the core set are great and did I say I think this is the best core set so far already? ^^

 

Really excited to see what will come next in this Dreadmere expansion. Jacob, Reisman, Worden and Wladislaw are good examples for "thugs" for me. They don't look heroic and I can see them robbing a struggling PC behind a tavern as well as storming a castle as part of an angry mob or robbing merchants on the lonely roads around the village. 

 

I do hope we will get some creative undead and monsters, the Bonesack dude is a good start.

And hags. A coven of hags with their cauldron :wub:

It will be interesting to see if there's any increase in the pledging rate as the US East Coast starts waking up, logging in, and seeing the new stretchgoals...

You can find them all year around at Hobby Lobby if you have one close. The last time I was there, they had 2 sizes of the ones that come in halves. I sure do miss having craft stores like Hobby Lobby and Michaels, there is just nothing comparable in Oz. ::(:

What is Dreadmere?

Dreadmere is a swamp kingdom (of an ancient elven city that sank, and partly resurfaced) in Reaper's home brew campaign setting for the Dark Heaven miniatures.

 

Dreadmere was also the focus of ReaperCon 2016, with four factions vying it out to control most of it. The top row in the expansion were metal exclusives during the convention.

Sounds like you  just stumbled on a great business venture for yourself!  Start a franchise craft company and you'd be rich! ::):

I believe Dreadmere is the focus of ReaperCon 2017 as well, and possibly future years.

The link is buried somewhere in the fifteen thousand KS comments, and I don't get the Dice Tower Weekly KS round up. But Dice tower does that, and a blurb about the Bones KS was in there. 

 

Met Tom Vassel at Dice Tower con this year. Seems like a nice guy. The con was fun. It sucks that they limit the number of tickets sold, but at the same time, I think that's part of the reason why we had a good time at a full, but not over crowded con. 

 

I will mention, that Dice Tower is far more board game centered. Though I ended up playing Pathfinder almost the entire weekend, because I play board games when I don't have an opportunity to play RPG's. :lol: 

 

 

Aww... I could have met Thes! :down: This was my 2nd year at Dice Tower con, and spent my time board gaming. The con is in Orlando, FL for five days and they have a HUGE lending library. You go up, tell them what you want, they get the game (if it isn't checked out) scan the game, scan your badge, and you have it for 24 hours before they start nagging you over the intercom. ::P:

 

My husband and I went with a list of 'We think this might be interesting, but do we want to spend the money' and checked out and played games. Cool stuff Inc has a scratch and dent sale they restock 3 times a day, and given how much travelling my games do and how minor the damage usually is, it's a great way to save some money.

      About this project
      In this third Frills & Fauna installment, we delve into the darker side of the Stargrind universe. The Overlords Kickstarter looks at one of the species in the galaxy that subdue others.  Overlords
      Behind every thrall is a master. A major antagonist in Stargrind is the Overlords. A wholly alien species best described as floating brains. Physically, the overlords are quite weak, as they have evolved to interact with the physical realm using their minds. Powerful with both telepathy and telekinesis, the overlords can control everything (and almost everyone) around them with a simple thought.  
      These models will involve two sets of components: bodies and tentacles. Different sets of tentacles may become available though stretch-goals to mix and match with the bodies. The number of "slots" on each body for attaching appendages is referred to as "soft points."
      Being cast in resin means they are very easily manipulated into different poses by placing them into hot water.
        Classes of Overlords
      Drone
      The most commonly spotted Overlord has been labelled the drone. Drones are slightly armoured in comparison to other classes of overlord, lending to their common presence on the battlefield where they are most vulnerable.
      The drone has 6 soft points.
      Watcher
      Named for its assumed purpose of being a scout, as it lurks the battlefields and rarely engages. Its single eye beholds locations and movements of creatures, communicating back to the overlords' hivemind. Unlike the drone, its eye is exposed for greater vision, but more susceptible to damage.
      The watcher has 8 soft points.
      Reaper
      If the overlords can't initially control a species, the reapers emerge to consume brain matter and learn the secrets of its biology. Equipped to tackle specimens still living, the reapers entangle their foes with tentacles before feasting on the head.
      The Reaper has 8 soft points.
       Infiltrator
      The infiltrators carry large egg-like spores on their bodies, which they disperse in secluded areas that are rich with organic material. This appears to be their only purpose, as their flaccid husks are abandoned with their deposits, perhaps to catalyze the growth process.
      The watcher has no soft points.
      Matriarch
      Meet the Matriarch! It's uncertain whether the matriarch is a mature version of the infiltrator, or a seperate class altogether, but she also bears overlord spores. Perhaps since infiltrators expire upon plantation, this class of overlord is indeed an alternative path, growing larger and more dominant rather than concluding in sacrifice.   The matriarch has 12 soft points. Sporeling
      Once an invader (or better) transplants its cargo of spores (chlamydospore) onto biomass, the spores begin to absorb the biomatter and grow. Some take on traits of their "food." Once they complete germination, the spores detach from the husk and float around until they either form self awareness, link into the hivemind of a mature overlord or fall prey to something else. Adolescent
      As sporelings grow, their embryonic roots retract, wither and harden. Often mistaken for horns or teeth, these scabby protrusions are reborn as tentacles or other feeler/manipulator devices. Scale shots

      About this project
      Overview
      Help us launch our first line of plastic miniatures for the tabletop games we all play and love.   Run by a family of gamers, Role 4 Initiative brings decades of experience in gaming and design. 
      You've seen our dungeon tiles and polyhedral dice, now we wish to bring that same quality and value to the table with 28mm high-detail pre-painted plastic miniatures.
      Starting off with some of the most common player and monster types (Humans, Orcs, Zombies, and Skeletons), we will be producing all of our minis in sets of 6 or more per category, so you can easily and cheaply outfit your game with the figures you need.
      Our goal is to bring a very highly detailed set of miniatures, with excellent paint jobs for a reasonable price.  We all love gaming, but we're not all great artists.  So, we will always provide miniatures that are fully assembled, professionally painted, and ready to use.
      Our minis are made from a PVC material that provide both durability and flexibility.  We also have gone to great lengths to bring as much realism as possible by providing proper anatomical proportions in a 60:1 scale. 
       
       
      The Process
      First, we thought about some of the most memorable encounters of our games, wishing we had some appropriate miniatures to represent the characters and monsters in the story.

      Then we envisioned what these characters would look like and hired artists to create 3D models, 2D renderings, and background scenery that fit our stories.  But made sure they could easily fit your stories too.

      Finally, we took these models and renderings to our factory to create the plastic injection molds from which we were able to produce the painted samples you see below.

      What you get for your support:
      Set #1 - Human Adventurers
      Concept design:
      Set 1: Human Adventurers Production Samples:
      Male Viking Warrior  
      Female Blademaster  
      Male Cleric  
      Male Ranger  
      Male Wizard  
      Female Archer

      Painted by - May Aguilar Andreu of MayArt  
      Newly Cast Bust  
       In 2016, our son who has Down syndrome graduated from high school. Most of the options for the disabled are limited so we decided to create our own opportunities for him. My wife left her career and we started Boyd's Toys. We are a small, family run business that specializes in resin cast figures and commercial printing. We do our own 3D printing, mold making, vacuum and pressure casting. John Boyd has over 30 years of printing and design experience and his favorite past time is table top games. We started creating our own figures in resin about 18 months ago on a 15 mm project called Chronicles of the Wayfarer. What is this project? Chronicles of the Wayfarer is a 15 mm war-game that has been under development for over a year now. It has two complete armies to support it and two more on the way. We have decided to release four busts to help raise funds and create a fan base to continue the development of CotW, so stay tuned ... three more are coming. 
      Below you will find a sample selection of our upcoming release of Chronicles of the Wayfarer. These are 15 mm leaders of the Kilnites. Left to right: Knight of the Kiln, War Screamer, Shield Legion, and Crossbowmen Leader. These are submissions from a recent painting contest that we sponsored. 
       
      For the first 48 hours we will be offering a free 30mm figure of the Lawgiver, "Unmasked". This figure will only be available in one of two ways and will never be sold by us after this Kickstarter. Anyone ordering a bust in the first 48 hours will receive one free. Anyone sharing our Kickstarter announcement on our Facebook page will be entered for a chance to win one of 10 figures.
       
       
      Anyone participating in the Kickstarter will have the ability to purchase additional figures. Once this campaign is done this version of the Lawgiver will be retired and his mask goes back on.

      Hi friends:
      After hard months of working, we´ve improved the game Iron League Blacks Stadium and the art has changed. Mechs and miniatures are amazing now. The board game has a new full cooperative campaign with map, scenary and enemies generation.
      The competitive mode continues and has been improved.
      So, we also want to change the title of the game, and this is:
      IRON WARS
      In July on Kickstarter. Soon more news.
